5 ways to improve your bottom line in winter
Winter in Utah brings snow and fun, but it can also bring increased energy bills and weather damage to your facility. Here are 5 ways to prepare your building for winter that can help improve your bottom line.
- Have the windows cleaned. Dirty windows prevent natural light from brightening lobbies and rooms as well as give your facility a dark and cold feel. Hiring a professional cleaning service at least twice a year, in the spring and fall, can help keep your facility looking bright and well maintained.
- Have the carpets professionally cleaned. Winter brings salt and slush that can mat and ruin carpet fibers. The best way to keep carpets from wearing out prematurely is to have them cleaned regularly, especially during the winter. Carpets should be cleaned at least twice a year.
- Check for adequate matting beneath carpet. Matting prevents winter salt from leeching through and damaging the floor underneath.
- Lay out winter mats and carpet runners. Mats capture salt and dirt tracked in from outside and help extend the life of your carpet.
- Check the lights. On dark winter days, adequate lighting is especially important to ensure safety, particularly in facilities where machinery is part of company operations. Offices also need good lighting to provide a better work atmosphere.
By following these 5 simple steps, you can save money this winter.
